FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — JAN. 15, 2013 — Equine Guelph is pleased to announce the introduction of Health Flash – a program of four seasonal health reminders to help the busy horse owner keep on top of the changes that affect their sector during the year. The program will also provide special alerts in case of disease outbreaks and comes complete with interactive games to test your seasonal savvy.
“Health Flash will be a valuable tool to any horse owner as it provides very concise information to help keep on top of seasonal issues. Health Flash has the potential to have a positive economic impact on the industry as a whole as ‘healthy horses’ translate into a ‘healthy industry’,” says University of Guelph researcher, Dr. Kim McGurrin.
In addition to funding from Vétoquinol Canada and Merck Canada, investment in this project has been provided by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada through the Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program (CAAP). In Ontario, this program is delivered by the Agricultural Adaptation Council. Other partners include the Canadian Animal Health Institute and the Ontario Veterinary College.
